I'm doing research on the above topic, but so far haven't found any or at the most only limitedly valuable articles/data published in recent time (past 6 months).
What I'm interested in is how users are protected against counter-party risks when using an exchange to trade BTC for fiat currency, and if there is any data available as to how often this protection has been necessary and did or didn't work.
In addition, I'm curious if there are any post-trade security issues (albeit I don't imagine there could be any, asides from the classics like losing your pw, wallet or credentials to the nether or a third party) and general post-trade procedures which alter from the usual bitcoin trade sans exchange service.
Are there numbers declaring these risks? Statistics that are freely accessible, which I might have missed? I've been looking for data the past hour but so far have come up short. Keep in mind, the data should be as fresh as possible.
Of course I do take all kinds of other statements as well - articles, news, reviews. But a neat statistic or similar would quite simply save me the hassle of constructing one myself.
Thanks for your help!
